Hyperprolactinemia with a chance of Amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, galactorrhoea, gynecomastia, infertility.
Here are Extrapyramidal side-effects of low-dose aripiprazole. No complete recovery.
Here are Two Case Reports of rapid onset Akathisia with low dose Aripiprazole
I’ve reviewed these four case reports and three of the cases were due to combination fluoxetine and aripiprazole, because fluoxetine inhibits one of the two liver CYPs that metabolize aripiprazole, thus resulting in very much higher levels of aripiprazole than they were dosed.
In addition, all cases reports were given 5 or 10mg aripiprazole, which is not as low a dose as for ME.
The middle case report (Abilify and lorazepam) the patient did make a complete recovery, if I’m reading this correctly.
Im not saying there aren’t other reports of bad situations, just clarifying these four.
One very important lesson to everyone: if you want to trial Abilify, make sure to diligently check that any other drugs you are taking don’t inhibit metabolism of Abilify! Or on the other not dangerous side, make sure you aren’t taking drugs that increase the metabolism of Abilify, then it just won’t work.
